me

Hi, I am Sriram Varadarajan, I grew up in Bengaluru, India and have lived in the United States since 2001, mostly in beautiful Colorado. I enjoy cycling, skiing, and being outdoors, with a special love for the mountains. Photography has been a favorite hobby for many years, I mostly  shoot landscapes, nature and a few random themes…really, anything that catches my eye.  I pretend to be a writer with my blog but have a long ways to go. Activity on this site follows the ebb and flow of the annual calendar of my life and I have come to realize that September through December is most prolific (photography-wise). The days when I would wake up early and go on photo shooting trips are long gone and now I am a photographer that shoots what is convenient. New toys (camera gear) or ideas generally tend to spawn a few obsessive weeks of picture taking.  Thanks for stopping by, do leave a comment or two…visits and comments stoke the ego and is a great motivator.

Sriram

    Sriram,

    Was on travel for two weeks hence saw your website just today. The landscapes are surreal and I liked the B&W collection too. Some of your random album shots remind me of my style…
    Love them all and keep it up!

    Cheers

      Thanks guys, appreciate you taking the time to visit. I think I can add a feature on the site that will allow you to subscribe to alerts and new material. I need to look into it.

      Our best to you all. I get to see your landscapes on fb but it would be good to see some pictures of the family sometime.

    Hi Sriram,

    I work at the San Diego Natural History Museum and we are interested in possibly using one of your photographs in an exhibit we are currently developing. I’d like to obtain your permission to do so if possible.

    Would you mind sending me an email? I’d be happy to tell you more about our project and the intended use of the image. Thanks Sriram.

    Sriram,

    I need a high key image to include in my film textbook. I like your white rose. Can I use it?

      Hi Peter,

      I am sorry for not replying sooner. I just saw your comment… unfortunately it was in my spam folder. Please feel free to use the rose in case you still need it.

      best regards,

      Sriram
